    Because of this we changed are times since the reception is only 3 hours

    4-5 - Ceremony

    5-6 family pic

    6-7 - cocktail hour

    7-10 - Reception

     

    We might pay the extra fee for the extra hour ..3 hours does not seem like enough time at all.

    hi ya, yeh this was my issue too, my ceremony is 4pm-5pm, i think your time scedules is a great idea- i think i will copy you!!!! i also think 3 hours isnt long enough at all- we will defo pay for the extra hour... imagine if you didnt add the family pics hour your reception would finish at 9pm...!!!!!

      If you have any questions please let me know.  I couldn't have planned a wedding without this thread and want to pay it forward.  No official pictures yet, but here is a candid from my friend

       


      Congrats - looks lovely!!

        We are using the DJ in place of the live music, so that's always an option- you only get the DJ for two hours though, so we are using an ipad for the dinner hour, and then the DJ for the remaining two hours.  I agree, three hours is SO short, but budget-wise, we can't do it- that might change once we're there...we'll see!

         

        We have a similar timeline

        Ceremony 4pm (the sun sets at 5:30!)

        Cocktail Hour 5-7pm - I think offiically only for an hour, but then people can relax for a bit before dinner.

        Dinner 7-10pm

          Speaking of DJ, our travel agent told us the Doremixx is no longer available (or will charge a 24% increase in pricing), so the resort now uses Abispl DJ Company.   Has anyone heard of them?

          Kristen, Does this apply even if we already have him booked?

            I don't know :(  It really sucks too, because I never specifically asked for him, I just assumed it would be him, as he was contracted with the resort.  Now we're stuck with this company I have never heard of and has no google existence either.

            I also just got married last week. Deisy and Pilar took care of everything! they were amazing!!! I brought 3 suitcases full of wedding stuff and they managed to decorate and do exactly what I asked. They are very organize. I wish I can relive the day again. Will start working on a review shortly.

             

            here is a photo one of the guests took
